Digital Ripples

Popwarp, originally uploaded by nicoletbn.

In the past, I was part of an oekaki community. That's where I drew the pixel art bits I posted earlier. Every so often there'd be an image I loved, but it'd only be 300x200 pixels large, and I wanted something more wallpaper sized. Tiling looked terrible, and ruined the impact of the image, while stretching to fit or make larger made it look bloated and wrong. I started isolating my favorite parts, and pulling the ends out to reach the size of the frame I wanted to fill, which looked right to me.

I decided to try this on a photo. It turned out nice. It looks like pushing and pulling at time. I'd like to animate these ripples coming in and out of a photo, but I'll need to figure out a less tedious way of creating them...

The original photo I used is one of Ed's from his trip to Washington DC for the inauguration.

Would you be willing sometime to have your 'drink!" image converted to vector art? That way it could be enlarged as big as someone (like me) wants, without corrupting it's clean lines. (i'd love to have it poster-sized, to hang up behind the bar at cons, while i'm bartending.)

Oh, wow, I am so bad at livejournal!

I'd love to take a few hours and convert it to vector, but lately my life has been SO busy!
